The International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF) Men’s World Cup served off its first spins on Friday, November 13 and there was a shocking loss for Nigeria’s best table tennis player, Quadri Aruna, who was beaten by Slovenian Darko Jorgic.

President of the Nigeria Table Tennis Federation Engr. Tikon Ishaku has refuted claims that the NTTF relies solely on the abilities of Quadri Aruna stressing that there are a lot more other players who can also hold their own in the sport.

Ishaku speaking in a chat with newsmen said the board of the NTTF is proud of what they have on ground right now and that efforts are been made to ensure the up and coming players are no far off the mark as regards churning out players of quality while lamenting the obvious impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic on the Federation’s program of activities.
